Teaching methods

At the core of the course is the open design-studio culture. In order to inspire design projects you will first learn about the world of architectural design. Functional, aesthetic and technical aspects will be considered and implemented in your designs. Tutors will guide and advise you on how to develop your ideas successfully.

You will be introduced to basic materials and construction technologies and to research methods helping you to gain knowledge and understanding. You will use computer-aided drawing, however the emphasis is on manual creativity and design skills. At the same time you will read relevant literature and improve your communication skills.

The International Year One is suitable for international students who have completed A-levels or a recognised International Foundation programme, or who are already in the first year of a relevant undergraduate degree in their home country, but do not meet the academic or English language requirements for direct entry to Newcastle University.
